“A Country Boy with Tires on his Truck this High!” October 3, 2009

Have you heard Jake Owen’s latest song called “8 Second Ride?”

Here’s an excerpt . . .

  “. . .I ain’t never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this
high”. . .

. . . which pretty much describes my son Nate’s F-350 since he installed a lift kit and even bigger tires and wheels on it a couple of weekends ago!  (Please note for perspective:  Nate is 6’5″ tall, so his truck is HUGE!)


It was a ton of work, which he did all by himself . . .


. . . which I attribute to the years he spent building elaborate, $100-something Lego kits, with millions of pieces, and instruction books 3-inches thick!  (He has a lot more patience than me!)


The result?  His truck is MUCH bigger than his brother’s . . .


In fact, I can stand next to Nate’s truck and have full head clearance UNDERNEATH his side-view mirror!


Oh, and stepping out of it can be hazardous to your health. . . that is, if you forget you’re two-stories high and have heels on!  We won’t even talk about hoisting yourself up that high!


Nate—I’m SO proud of you!

Here’s the rest of that song . . .

“Well, hey girl what’s your name?
Haven’t I seen you before?
I recognized them dark green eyes when you dosie doe’d across the floor
Are you alone or are you with someone?
She said a matter of fact I’m not
So i took her hand that’s when it all began and we headed towards the parking lot .

And she said hey boy, do you mind takin’ me home tonite?
‘cuz I ain’t never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this
. . .  it’s gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride. . .”

 Hmm. . . I’m thinking Nate may have had an ulterior motive for lifting that truck . . .

Any country girls out there?
